Queen Anne's Musicians Perform at Remembrance Concert
Friday 7th November 2014
The Consort Choir and soloists performed at a Concert For Remembrance at St Mark’s, Reading on Thursday 6 November.
The Consort Choir performed Pergolesi’s ‘Stabat Mater’, Purcell’s ‘Hear my Prayer’ and Britten’s ‘Agnus Dei’ from his Missa Brevis, which was made famous by being used as the theme tune for the film ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’. There were some exceptional performances from violinists Camille Morana and Anastasia Dekic and a moving rendition of the Prelude from Bach’s Unaccompanied Cello Suite No. 1, performed by Elisabeth Ng.
The vocal soloists sang a range of music from Sting’s ‘Fields of Gold’ to ‘Sea Fever’ by John Ireland. It was a very memorable and poignant evening and an excellent preparation for Tuesday 11 November when Queen Anne’s will be joining with The Oratory School for a concert at 7.00pm in St Peter’s, Eaton Square, London to commemorate 100 years since the start of World War One. We hope to see you there!
